Exquisite outcomes arise from synergy between client and architect

Every project reinforces the worth of the architect. So many schemes would have been mundane and often economically poorer without this contribution. What really stood out among the winners was the use and integration of warm natural materials and finishes including stone, oak, brick, copper, bronze and concrete, exquisitely detailed in the way they connected or turned a corner.

The partnership between client and architect was strongly evident in the great lengths taken to understand all the contextual inputs, from human enjoyment to ecological footprint. Inventive solutions to a range of social and environmental problems hold centre stage this year and the successful synergy between client and architect continues to be the key in achieving an exquisite outcome.
